Quiet please, we’re recording

March 8, 2014

We’ve been holed up in the studio putting the finishing touches on our third full-length record, due for release later this year. Follow the progress on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We’re also playing a New York City show on Thursday June 5th at Santos Party House on Lafayette Street just south of Canal Street. It’ll be a double-bill with the mighty Chris Campion. Chris will be playing a set of songs he’s recently recorded solo, but he’ll be backed up by a full-on electric band.

2013 –> 2014

January 2, 2014

What a year! 2013 was one of our greatest to-date. We got to play New York shows with some of our heroes including Violent Femmes, Old 97s , and Bill Janovitz (of Buffalo Tom). We toured the mid-Atlantic states and released a new 7-inch single featuring a guest appearance by Sean Eden of LUNA. And the year ended with a huge outpouring at a SOLD OUT Mercury Lounge.

We’re gonna hole up in the studio now and finish recording our third LP. The 2014 release-date is TBD. Many thanks to our friends and fans for all the support. Keep checking back for updates on the recording process and upcoming shows.
